Question about 1996 Pontiac Grand Am

1 Answer

Schematic for the dashboard of a 96 grand am

There is a button next to the dial that controls the dome light on the left of my steering wheel. I think when I pushed it the first time on accident is when my car has randomly does not start. When I have the car jumped to get started again then it sometimes doesn't have that problem for several days or weeks and sometimes it will not start the very next time that I start it. What is that button for, it has a very strange looking symbol on it that I can't fathom what it would be for.

SOURCE: car wont start...sometimes

Sounds like a bad starter solenoid, usually cheapest and easiest to replace the starter and solenoid as a unit. It is always best to check for power between the solenoid and the starter with a test light, if the solenoid clicks but the test light doesn't light up you have found the problem in the solenoid.

2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara; I have lost lighting in my steering wheel buttons and radio display. In addition my dome lights don't work with door(s) open.

Hi. You could check for a small relay or fuse that must have burnt out. If you open the fuse box, there will a diagram of where each fuse is placed for what. Check slowly through the dashboard fuses or relays. Usually, the newer cars use simple electrics to run the entire system.

Where is the radio fuse on a 1995 camry? I do not see a fuse box under dash.

1.Answer It is a 15A fuse (#24), located in the instrument panel fuse box (behind the small fold out draw on lower the left side of dash board. Left of the steering wheel). It is the far right fuse on the middle row.

2. I had the same problem when my dome light went off. When I pulled its blown fuse, the radio went out. The radio fuse was fine, but when I replaced the dome light fuse, the radio came back on again. The dome light fuse is a 20A in the fuse box under the hood next to the battery.

3.there is on fuse in the back of the radio itself

Where is the dimmer switch on the grand caravan

  • There should be a little wheel on the dash to the left of the steering wheel that will control the dome light. As for the other lights, those are controlled by the multi-function switch that is on the end of the "blinker arm."

Dashboard lights not working

Try and look under the steering wheel area for a fuse block. When you pull off the cover there should be schematics on fuses. Go 1 by 1 pulling them and replacing if ok, otherwise replace the ones tht are bad.

1996 GMC Suburban...Courtesy lights stay on and will not go off. Tried button- off-- tried interior lights up and down....Button to turn off dome lights does nothing and will not stay punched in

96 Jimmy Check the SMT surface mount technology, referring to circuit boards.
WOW, listen under the steer wheel is a panel
drop it down on the panels left side as it comes down is a small black plastic box left of the diagnosis jack with I don't know 5 or 6 wires going to it, wires come from the left hand corner above the emer brake pedal. Plugged in lights on ,,out lights off. Then have the unit tested. or replace. If there was ever a power surge the caps could have blown.

Can't find the fuse box under the driver's side dash on my 2000 suzuki grand vitara. my radio/clock not working and dome light does not come on when the driver's side door is opened.

Its below the Dashboard, on the left side of your knee. You have to use a torch & locate it from under the Dashboard, Its roughly near to the Clutch Pedal.
Here, it looks like this: (The Black one is the Fuse box) ba18901.jpg
